Lot of talk around today of the AFL indicating that they are considering different strategies to the make up of the season in an 18 team competition. 8 months ago I put the suggestion of the Final 10 forward in a blog post on the AFL site and also in a survey that the AFL ran. Lots have crapped on the idea (including Mick Malthouse and Ed Wyatt) but I think its all in the selling of it being still a final 8 with the last 2 teams decided in a one week playoff between the 7th through 10th.
As with most things, the devil is in the detail and I don’t think people are thinking about what happens if we stick with a pure 8 in a 18 team competition! Anyway, hope you enjoy the podcast. Give me your thoughts below in the comments or in the Poll (up soon).
